    Very odd duck, under normal circumstances that 4.3 wasnt a bad motor at all!

    So, time for the bones. I went with tubing to keep weight down knowing that bends this sharp were gonna look terrible in tubing. Doesnt matter how it looks though because its all getting wrapped in styrene to mimick A-pillars and such. As long as the overall shape is right and its solid.

    Such a uncommon method of building for such a common model of truck. I love it!

    It’s obviously a transformer truck guys. From airplane to truck! Sooo cool. I want one.

    Great looking rig so far. Nice to see some different techniques.
